Florida Career College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (85)
Went to the school with hopes of graduating and starting my career and the school closed completely down with no warning at all I had 2 classes left before I had to graduate.
Classes are a joke, most days sat there and did nothing. Information is out of date. Do not go here
Instructors were placed that were not qualified to teach. Financial aid was kept, and not returned to loan company before they closed school. Purposely kept funds thinking loan would be written off by loan company. Now have to get them to return funds. POC's don't return calls in refences to problems.
Don't do it, go to another college. Once this school get there money from the goverment for your tuition then your treated like crap. Including SOME of the people in Career Services, head of Xray group they are VERY RUDE. I made the worst decision in coming to Anthem. They make their own rules and policies as they wish. Plus there is a lot of favoritisim to whom they WANT TO help. So with this being said "STAY AWAY", it's a scam, a rip off.
GUYS -GUYS -STOP TALKING WITH NOT SENSE -THIS IS THE BEST SCHOOL EVER - I DID GRADUATED IN 2011 AS A NETWORK ENGINEER -AFTER 3 YEARS- NOW I WORK AS A NETWORK MANAGER FOR A MAJOR COMPANY- I DID GRADUATED WITH MAJOR AWARDS 4.0. PRESIDENT LIST -BEST STUDENT LIST- YOU GUYS ARE BAD STUDENTS.
To anyone who read this please don't do what I did and do your research, this School make a lot of promises and doesn't keep any. I had the misfortune of picking this school and I could be more disappointed. They promised a evening course, but after the fist two semester you find out that the classes will be in the morning, They do not have all the accreditations, Their schedule can change at any moment, They change uniforms colors just so that they can charge you more money. Schools like this should be illegal, please don't loose your time and money.
This school if full of smoke and mirrors. After over 1.5 years of complaining not only by students, but by instructors also, the schools network administrators have the computers that are used for the students locked down so hard, that the basic assignments in the books they ordered for the students were not able to be completed. If you attend this school for IT you better have your own computer, and Internet at home because between the web restrictions on the schools wireless and the computer restrictions, the only possible way to complete the assignments in the book is to do them at home on your time. The school refuses to address the issues that the students are bringing to them, and they are telling each student whatever it takes to keep them. I will never return to this school, nor will I ever advise a person to go to this school. After talking to some of the medical students, their side of the school is just as bad. One student in particular said their class had to do all their initial needle sticking on each other because the official test dummy had been worn out so bad, it was unusable. I did not choose this school, I was placed in this school by the department of education in Florida, because the school I was attending was shut down by the department of education and the FBI. that school was Fast Train. This school appears to be doing the same exact things from a students prospective, that fast train was doing prior to being shutdown. the fact that the credits are not transferable is also a major issue if you want to further your knowledge and degree. DO NOT GO TO FLORIDA CAREER COLLEGE AKA ANTHEM.EDU unless you are just doing it to do it... This school is the most unstable school I have been too, the courses offered have been renamed so many times during my time at the school, that you don't even know what you have or have not taken. There is no consistency in the school other then you don't know whats going to be what until the day it happens, this is to include your class schedule of what class you are going to take down do which teacher is going to instruct that class. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL... Take the time, spend the money and go through an accredited university which have transferable credits. The Career Department which is responsible for placing students in jobs didn't even ask me for a resume until I was into my last 2 classes for the school. Financial aide, they were good. That was an organized department. Instructors, about 50/50 1/2 of the instructors know what they are doing and teaching, the other pretty much just babysit you and read the power point presentations that are provided in the instructor resources. Your "Homework" that is required to be turned in is not graded, its a %100 or %0 the instructors require us to do this work on our time, however don't take any of their time to grade it, so you don't know if you have the right information come quiz or test time. There is a great deal more negatives about this school then there are positives. I could continue, but regardless of how much ranting I do here, it will never correct the negatives of that school.
I honestly won't recommend this school to anyone! I am still attending it and have tried to drop out but they somehow convinced me to stay (mostly because I don't want to be home doing nothing and not want to stop what I have started blah blah blah) but now it's back on my mind to not come back for the next module, just trying to see how is the best way to get out. The teachers are great ppl and that's what motivates me to actually come to class, along with some friends I've made but I have to be realistic, the school only wants your money. They call you a lot during the first week of enrollment if you don't show up to class just so they don't lose a student (money). I wish I would have done some research before I got into this mess but now I'm stuck with a debt and I don't work so I fear if I leave now I would have to start paying my debt. Classes are mediocre, I don't feel like I really learn anything and I still pass with all A's. I don't feel like they test my knowledge to the best of my ability. Also the staff are so stuck up (most of them), they are all giddy with you when you enroll and then act like they don't know you the following week. I'm going to do some research on what my best plan should be to get out sooner rather the later, so don't be like me. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
This school at first had lots of structure and organization , after a few passionate teachers were let go, dismissed. due to political stuff the school started falling apart! understaffed and overworked instructors equals no passion towards teaching, and mediocre lessons.They incorporated a new agenda where some students that enrolled earlier than others would alternate taking a week off school, pathic! the faculty were always confused and looked like they had no clue what was going on at their own job.I graduated the patient Care program. and haven't even received my temporary diploma, I received all my certifications .But when will I receive my actual diploma ? who knows ? I sure don't and when I asked no one knows either ! incredible !I participated in a program for students called federal work study it supposedly helps students make a little change while attending college, and from your paycheck you can pay your monthly enrollment from a very small check .The staff members work you to the bone! they are rude , inconsiderate , and when they buy food I was never regarded as a staff member, even though I did all the rough stuff.Lifting heavy boxes and putting up with bad attitudes .They should appreciate the students a lot more! after all we are paying to be enrolled and pay a monthly fee.dignity and respect isn't too much to ask for in my opinion .The classes are too fast paced and you can fall behind quickly, I'm extremely disappointed. and disgusted !
I really like my school. The rep was very helpful and fought for me to be admitted. The instructors are very professional and helpful. When I think of career colleges I do not think of actual degrees but I will end up graduating with an Associate's degree in nursing from an ACCREDITED nursing program. The price of this school is pretty pricy but it is well worth it because you receive alot of attention from the instructors and they actually know your name.
